Nothing has a bigger impact on a front door than fresh paint, which boasts curb appeal and provides protection from the elements. First buff the door with 220-grit sandpaper, and then prime it so that paint adheres better. According to Pat Sandor, a how-to expert at The Home Depot, “a smoother finish, like a semi- or high-gloss, will help prevent moisture from creeping in and forming mildew.”
